Black Swift

Hi birders,

 

Marilynne and I stopped in at Deep Bay on July 27, near the postal boxes and saw two young Northern Rough-wing Swallows being feed on the hydro lines just above us. We heard and then saw a Black Swift feeding a fledgling at the top of a very tall conifer tree. We watched and heard the Swift returning again and again to feed its offspring. A very great sighting for sure, the first time I have ever seen the Black Swift feeding a youngster.

 

 

Good birding
